"Very easy, tender, and tasty brisket. For a small brisket, use 1 jar pickles. Be sure to trim brisket well. Dump in the dill pickle spears, juice and all! Just trust me on this one; the pickles cook down to almost nothing and the juice makes the meat super-tender!"

Oh my goosh,,, this was the best Brisket I've ever eaten and the easy way to fix. It was a big hit with my family,,I'll be using this recipe from now on.. Loved It!!! Thank You So very much

Great recipe!!! I added one cup of homemade spaghetti sauce!! Was amazing!! Spooned leftover sauce over rice!! Tasted great!! Thank you!!

Didn't change a thing - everyone loved it. It fed 10 people and many had seconds, some had thirds. One slight variation: I used sliced dill pickles because there were some kids who don't like to...

I am making this for the second time tonight. Brisket is expensive but I LOVE it!!

I was not really impressed with this recipe. It was okay, but not that good.
